While the movie industry has been shifting and changing to cope with the challenges brought about by the global Covid-19 pandemic, April is gearing up to be one of the biggest movie release periods in months. From bloody hand-to-hand combat to espionage shenanigans, here are the movies to catch this April:
Release date: 1o April 2021
The original 1995 Mortal Kombat movie is a seriously underrated piece of Hollywood cinema, as far as video game adaptations go, but no one can deny that it’s about time for a newer, more gorier take on the franchise that stays true to its bloody origins. Well, director Simon McQuoid’s Mortal Kombat reboot is releasing this month, giving us a darker tone, brutal violence, and the beloved characters we’ve been dying to see. The plot revolves around the Mortal Kombat tournament (duh), but focuses on a new hero, Cole, who has to fight alongside and against the likes of Sonya Blade, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Jax, Kano, Raiden, and more classic characters.
Release date: 16 April 2021
Starring Ready Player One’s Tye Sheridan, Voyagers follows a group of young men and women, bred for intelligence and obedience, who embark on an expedition to colonise a distant planet. But, when the group uncovers a disturbing secret about the mission, they defy their training and begin to explore their most primitive natures. Voyagers also stars Colin Farrell and Lily-Rose Depp, daughter of Johnny Depp.
Wrath of Man
Release date: 30 April 2021
Jason Statham and director Guy Ritchie have once-again teamed up for another crime-thriller, this time following a cash-in-transit driver in Wrath of Man. The film is actually based on the 2004 French film Cash Truck by Nicolas Boukhrief, and tells the story of a man who joins a cash-in-transit security company in order to find the killer of his son, who died in such a heist.
